Catechetical Components of the Christian Initiation Process: Illuminating and Securing the Path of Faith

What is the role of an evangelizing catechesis in the catechumenal process?  St. John Paul II tells us, “Adult catechesis is the principle form of catechesis, because it is addressed to persons who have the greatest responsibilities and the capacity to live the Christian message in its fully developed form.” (Catechesi Tradendae, 43)  This workshop will explore adult catechesis within the Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults.  Each period of the RCIA process has a distinctive catechetical objective in serving the Holy Spirit’s work of conversion, so each period of the RCIA should have a different “feel.”  The Rite itself gives us the guidelines for what RCIA participants need to know, and what we need to teach, thereby allowing the catechetical aspect of Christian Initiation to become more than merely information or teachings of tenets, but an entree into an eternal embrace, a love beyond all telling

This workshop is coming soon!
